Get in the holiday spirit with these festive door decoration ideas

Decorating a contemporary door is a little trickier than a traditional one. It's easy to find wreaths in green and red that work beautifully on a Victorian or Georgian house. But finding just the right mix of both isn't straightforward so we've gathered our tried and tested decorating ideas plus our top picks from this year's wreath collections. Read on to find out more.

1. Contemporary vibes

Bright colours and texture create a modern feel. Think about how you could use the decoration all year round – perhaps it might work elsewhere in your home? This pompom wreath with bright baubles is a great example of an all-year-round decoration that can be re-purposed as a festive wreath during the Christmas season.

2. Keep it natural

Natural bark or foliage wreaths add glamour and texture to your wooden or bronze door. Simple and effective, this look is a modern twist on a traditional wreath.

3. Go minimalist

A simple star can work well with a larger door - see above - this is a great option if you favour a minimalist approach to decorating. 

4. Make an impact

A geometric metal wreath is also a fantastic choice if you want to keep it simple. You can decorate it yourself like we've done here or keep your wreath stark and minimal.

5. Sophisticated approach

A feather wreath is an unusual way to add colour, depth and texture to your door display as shown by the exquisite mix of rich blue, purple and green tones in the photo.

6. Light show

A fibre optic wreath is a great way to decorate your front door during the festive period. Featuring colour changing LEDs as its light source, this wreath creates a lovely wave effect that looks fantastic at night.
